What important decision in your professional life have you based largely upon your intuitive feelings? What about in your personal life?
I would have to say that my most recent career change was entirely intuitive. Because I certainly did not sit down and consider any of the pros or cons to moving not only from one company to another, but from an entire set of expectations to another.
I’m not saying I didn’t put any thought into this move. But it all happened so quickly, it felt like a whirlwind of change and I just didn’t have time to process it all as it was happening. I just went with it. And so far it’s still working out.
Still stressful… but working out.
Personal life? Would my move to my current apartment count as personal life? Sure, let’s go with that. I’d been looking for a place to live for a while, but when I came across the opening in this building, I just went for it. I’d already been doing the math in my head for months about what I could generally afford, so I took what was already in my head and applied.
I mean, it’s possible I’m answering this question all wrong. Because sometimes it’s hard for me to be strictly intuitive. No… most of the time… I’m a logical thinker. I like to consider options and make informed decisions. Intuition is not my instinct.
But what about you? What decisions have you made that were purely intuitive? Let me know in the comments!
